keita morimoto


Oh.¬†Pink hair, flowers and foxes… love. These oil paintings¬†are the exquisite work of Japan-born, Toronto-based painter Keita Morimoto. If his name sounds familiar, it’s because I featured one of his pieces… on Friday. Yes, just this past Friday. I was writing about the “Art with Heart” auction and discovered one of the pieces he donated {“Self Portrait with a Cat”}. So, so good. Anyway, that led me to his portfolio, which immediately led to today’s gorgeous post. Oh, that pink hair.

    Beautiful use of ‘light’!

    I am drawn into these exquisite portraits (in particular the pink hair girl), from the connected unseen dance between sitter and painter.

    the expressions on the faces remind me of dutch painter johannes vermee… very compelling…
